Oleksandr Zinchenko has said he never doubted that Gabriel Jesus would hit the ground running at Arsenal.

The pair are now at Arsenal after playing together at Manchester City.

Jesus scored a double in the 4-2 win over Leicester City on Saturday.

"Of course I wish him well," he said. "And I never had any doubts about him, because he's a world-class player in terms of his numbers.

"You can see it as well in how he works along with his attitude every day in training. He's an example [to others].

"He's still young, everyone needs to improve somethings. He needs to work on a couple of things, like everyone, but the rest is unbelievable.

"He was good during all the years I've spent with him. He's an incredible player, always hungry for goals which is the best quality as a striker. He doesn't stop at all and I'm so happy for him.

"He's the guy who is always happy for the team. The team is always first and the club always in front of any individual thing. The most important thing was three points, that's so important. We need to be as a team."
